Cookie Monster: Honey Almond Biscotti

Cookie Monster Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

My bucket list includes a bunch of obvious things—learn how to scuba dive, visit India, eat at Le Bernardin—but also a few stranger ones. Right up there next to Get Drunk and Attend the Westminster Dog Show is Learn How to Keep Bees. Why? Well, primarily because I love honey and secondly, if you don't find bees totally fascinating, I don't think we can be friends. More

From The Pastry Dungeon: Black Olive Biscotti

Anna Markow Post a comment

I'm going to be honest with you. Straight up blunt, no-holds-barred, the-truth-hurts honest. We, the pastry chefs of the world, think you're boring. Well, most of us do. Those of us who do this because of our uninhibited creativity and our interest in pushing the boundaries of what you can eat for dessert hate nothing more than to be stuck endlessly making the same tired, outdated desserts. Yes, I'm talking to you, girl who always orders the molten chocolate cake, and dude who can't resist apple pie à la mode, and friends who ooh and ah over every soufflé with chocolate sauce. More

Bake the Book: Lemon, Olive Oil, and Almond Biscotti

Made with the very Sicilian combination of almonds, olive oil, and lemon, these biscotti take on the peppery, green notes of the oil. They're rich in a way that's completely different from those baked using butter. More

There's a time and a place for biscotti, and when the moment's right it's great to know how to make a batch. They are the perfect pairing for coffee or tea&mdash when you want a little something sweet but you're not quite in the mood for a sugary cookie or other dessert. Biscotti are both easy to package without breaking and extremely shelf stable, making them a thoughtful and pretty homemade gift or cookie jar staple. More

Cookie Monster: Hazelnut Black Pepper Biscotti

Cookie Monster Carrie Vasios Mullins 2 comments

Obviously the hardest part about moving to a new city is saying goodbye to your family and friends. What I forgot to anticipate when I left New York was the sadness I'd feel over missing those people in my life who I saw on a regular basis, and liked a great deal, but would never call to say hi. Take the women who work at Amy's Bread in the West Village. More

Cookie Monster: Fig and Walnut Biscotti

Cookie Monster Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

A holiday tradition in the Vasios household is to decorate clementines by pressing whole cloves into the skin of the fruit. I've always loved the old-timey feel of this activity, as if Charles Dickens himself is going to pop into my dining room and say, "Carrie, my dear, stop being so stingy with those cloves. Who do you think you are, Ebeneezer Scrooge?" More

Cookie Monster: White Chocolate Dipped Lemon-Almond Biscotti

What are these white chocolate coated behemoths? They couldn't be real biscotti. They're extra large and despite being double baked, they're not particularly crunchy. But the Italian-American hybrid cookie works. More

Edible DIY: Bacon Chocolate Chip Biscotti

Lucy Baker 2 comments

I pulsed the bacon in the food processor, which helped to infuse every last crumb of biscotti with smoky, meaty flavor. This is the stuff of dreams. The rich chocolate chunks are the perfect complement to the salty, meaty bacon. Each bite yields layer upon layer of mostly-sweet-but-also-savory flavors. More
